prev page Chapter 12 (14/26) next page

We'll start off in the exact same spot. Head on to the house (#1). You will have to take care of the basic needs of your characters. Notice that you'll be able to control Mickey's actions from now on. Leave the financial stuff for latter, especially since you won't have to worry about the money for the time being. Nevertheless, I wouldn't recommend quitting your job, especially if Riley has been promoted several times. Before you decide to do anything else, you will be greeted by aunt Sharon (#2). You will receive two presents from her - a luxurious bed and... the entire house! Thanks to that, you won't have to worry about her and you'll be able to focus on the remaining objectives.

1 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Goal: Get pregnant (+500 Aspiration) - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Goal: Get pregnant (+500 Aspiration)

First of all, you should take your time and read the instructions by clicking on the goal button (#1). You will find out more about what exactly needs to be done. I would recommend that you replenish needs bars of your characters before you decide to proceed with the main goal. Nevertheless, you should open the gift window. As you've probably noticed, you have received a luxurious bed from aunt Sharon. Put it in your bedroom (#2). You can sell the old bed, as you won't need it anymore.

2 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Keep working on the needs bars (#1) - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Keep working on the needs bars (#1). This is very important, because otherwise getting pregnant would probably take more than one attempt. Make sure that you've done everything according to the plan, so you'll be able to finish up with this objective the same day, without having to wait for anything else. As for the energy bar, I would recommend using a coffee machine, so your characters won't have to go to sleep. You can also watch some TV for comfort and fun. There's also a hot tub in the gift menu. You could put it in your garden, especially since you'll be able to increase its environment rating.

3 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Make sure that everything is ready and that your main characters are happy - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Make sure that everything is ready and that your main characters are happy. Choose one of your characters and click on the bed. You will have to press the Relax button (#1). Choose the second character and do the same thing. The goal here is to have them lying on the bed (#2).

4 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
You could proceed with the pregnant process right away, however in some cases (lower relationship status) it won't be possible - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

You could proceed with the pregnant process right away, however in some cases (lower relationship status) it won't be possible. If this has happened, you would have to choose some of the other actions from the menu. Cuddle seems like a good idea (#1). Thankfully, it shouldn't take too long. Open the menu once again and choose Try For Baby (#2).

5 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
A funny cut-scene should appear on your screen (#1) - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

A funny cut-scene should appear on your screen (#1). If you have played "Sims 2" before than you shouldn't be surprised by what happens next. You shouldn't have any other problems helping Riley to get pregnant (#2). She will find out about this in a couple of days, so you will have to be patient, because you won't be able to proceed with the next objective right away.

6 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Like I've said before, you will have to wait for something new to happen - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Like I've said before, you will have to wait for something new to happen. Meanwhile it would be a good idea to return to the usual stuff. Riley will probably have to go to work, so make sure that she's ready (#1). The same goes with Mickey, however he should have a few days off. Additionally, he's only got about fives hours of work. You could try and help him to get a promotion, however this won't be necessary. It's very important that your main characters spend some time together (#2). Thankfully, you should be able to organize their time without any major problems.

7 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
The first symptoms of being pregnant should appear very soon (#1) - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

The first symptoms of being pregnant should appear very soon (#1). You will have to be very patient here. Make sure that Riley's needs are being satisfied, so she'll be happy and entertained. You should also receive a confirmation that she has been placed on maternity leave (#2). This means that you won't have to go to work, BUT you'll be receiving money every day. Nevertheless, I wouldn't recommend spending all money on unnecessary things.

8 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Goal: Prepare a room for the baby (+750 Aspiration) - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Goal: Prepare a room for the baby (+750 Aspiration)

This new mission objective should appear just after you've received a confirmation about the maternity leave (#1). I'm sure that you're going to have some problems understanding what has to be done here. You won't have to modify the living room. Instead, you should be able to find a small room that's located near the bedroom (#2).

9 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Make sure that you have read the instructions, so you will know what has to be done - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Make sure that you have read the instructions, so you will know what has to be done. Open the buy window. You will have to acquire certain things: Magical Mystery's "Shappe, Rattle & Roll", Rip Co. Wobbly Wabbit Head, Rip Co. Xylophone (#1), Sanitation Station Baby Changing Table and The Kinder Kontainer (#2).

10 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
You should be able to fit all of these objects in the new room (#1) - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

You should be able to fit all of these objects in the new room (#1). I'm sure that you won't have any other problems here. You could also buy other objects for your new baby. This won't be necessary, but it might help. Choose some of the available curtains. You will also be able to find some other toys. These objects aren't too expensive, so you should be able to afford them without having to worry about your current budget. Once this is done, the game should automatically close this mission objective (#2). Otherwise you wouldn't be able to proceed with the next goal.

11 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
As you've probably noticed, a belly of our future mom has expanded (#1) - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

As you've probably noticed, a belly of our future mom has expanded (#1). You will also have to modify a day plan for Riley, especially when it comes to going to the bathroom (#2). Notice that it only takes a few hours to deplete the bladder bar. She will eat a lot and need more sleep. Thankfully, you won't have to go to work, so you shouldn't have any problems helping her to satisfy all basic needs. Additionally, make sure that the fridge has been refilled to maximum.

12 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Goal: Throw a party for at least three guests (+1000 Aspiration) - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Goal: Throw a party for at least three guests (+1000 Aspiration)

Once you've prepared a room for your new baby, you should be able to proceed with this new task (#1). Throwing a party will require you to have at least three friends or colleagues. The objective will be to invite them to the party. Thankfully, you can have less than three friends. Some of them may refuse to go to your party, however you won't have to be worried about that. Make sure that you're ready for the party. You will have to use one of your phones. Head on to the Throw Party section (#2). Now you will have to choose House Party. Wait for one of your main characters to use the phone.

13 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
A new window should appear on your screen (#1) - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

A new window should appear on your screen (#1). You shouldn't have any problems figuring out what has to be done here. You must choose at least three people from the left list. Use the arrows to invite them to the party (they will appear in the right field). You should also receive an answer about who's coming and who's not (#2). You will probably be able to invite two friends to the party. That's enough.

14 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Meanwhile you should consider taking care of several other things - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Meanwhile you should consider taking care of several other things. First of all, Mickey should be wearing a suit. You won't have to change dresses for Riley. Just make sure that she's wearing a standard everyday outfit. Now you should consider buying a new stereo (#1). You should also acquire a buffet (#2) or a busbar, however you would have to find enough space to place these items in the living room.

15 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Important - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Important! Once you've acquired a buffet, you will have to fill it with food. You can do this by clicking on this object and choosing the available action (#1). You shouldn't have any problems doing that. Some of the first guests will arrive very soon (#2). Make sure that your main characters are focused only on throwing the party. They shouldn't be doing anything else at the moment.

16 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Now you will be able to proceed with the main goal - entertaining your guests and satisfying all of their needs - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Now you will be able to proceed with the main goal - entertaining your guests and satisfying all of their needs. The first step would be to ask someone to dance with Mickey (#1). Obviously, you will have to use the stereo in order to be able to hear music. You can also play darts (#2). As for the other things, make sure that the buffet is ready and in the living room. Your guests should start using it automatically, so you won't have to ask them to do this.

17 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
You could also buy other things (#1) that would allow you to have fun with the guests - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

You could also buy other things (#1) that would allow you to have fun with the guests. A video game seems like a good idea (#2), especially if you have a plasma TV in your living room. You should have a lot of money on your account, so spending some cash shouldn't be much of a problem. You probably won't have any problems entertaining the guests. Bear in mind, however, that they should be happy for at least a few minutes. Either way, you will be to advance to the next step.

18 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
I had to deal with the childbirth during the party (#1) - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

I had to deal with the childbirth during the party (#1). As a result, I didn't have to worry about keeping the guests happy, because that objective would end on its own. A new cut-scene should appear on your screen (#2).

19 - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough
Our main characters are going to have a baby (#1) - Chapter 12 - Scenario 1 - The Sims Life Stories - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Our main characters are going to have a baby (#1). This is where this entire scenario comes to an end. This means that you won't be given any additional tasks, because that was the end of the final chapter. You will have to wait for the game to reload this entire map. As a result, you will return to the Classic Mode (#2). This means that you won't have to worry about new missions. Instead, you'll focus on the free play. You may continue playing the game or head on to the second scenario. Congratulations!

Well, when Mickey and Riley relax, I can't get them to try for baby because it is not available. In that case, I don't know what to do.

smc7196 17/04/2011 19:11

Easy all you need to do is make food for them and buy this party game called It's Myshuno in the buy section under hobbies and in the section with the dart board GOOD LUCK

Marcy Rae 15/01/2011 01:05

I can't get Riley to have her baby or even get the party up to Good. What do i do

kaylaaa 20/11/2010 23:29

EVERYTIME I HAVE A BABY I HAVE TWO WHY?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?????

Jemcrystaline 06/07/2010 18:27

Every time I have a child or adopt a child (free mode - I've never played the story lines) it is a girl. When I search for info online I see people complaining that every time they have a boy. It must be a factor preset so there must be a designer cheat where you can set baby to be boy or girl. Is there anyone who has played Sims Life Stories in free mode and had both boy and girl babies? If you have twins are they identical or can you have boy and girl? Most of all, please tell me how to have a boy instead of a girl??? Note that Sims Life Stories does not have apples or watermelon to eat.

monkata 23/06/2010 08:58

i want to ask something.i made the party meter on good time by talking between the sims but the goal "Celebrations" is still there.what must happennd.please help

crimsonhope 28/02/2010 04:27

okay I noticed that one of the comments said they restarted Riley's story. I tried to do it myself but I keep messing up. Can someone make a guide or something explaining how to do that, Thanks!

Alexandra 28/01/2010 09:18

To whoever has problems with Riley's pregnancy-- It's a matter of prioritizing and time management. When I first started playing the game, my female Sims had a rough time with pregnancy. They'd have their Hunger and Energy bars pretty close to red (though I didn't lose any of them) and it could get to be a nightmare. It just takes practice. Now they pretty well breeze through it, for the most part. One thing I do when my Sims have children--build a house so that the nursery is right next to the kitchen, and keep everything on one floor (maybe have a second floor with "toys" such as a pool table). Don't make your Sim walk a mile with their baby to the kitchen. Also, centralize everything so when the kids come home from school, they have a short distance to the bathroom, then to the TV, then to their desk to do their homework. I have also noticed that if you send Children off to school with their Hunger meter not completely full (still green), then they're more likely to eat something at school instead of coming home with their Hunger meter in the yellow, and that'll put less of a burden on them and their parents. They only have so much time to get homework done before their Energy bar goes red, and getting something to eat cuts into that time. It's less of a problem with Teens, who can make their own meals and who have shorter school days. And don't have them sit down with anyone when eating if you're pressed for time, because it takes them longer. (Less talking, more eating, people!)

Alexandra 28/01/2010 09:08

One time I played through it, Riley had a girl, another time I played it, she had twin boys. I think it's pretty well random. I also noticed that if conception occurs after a WooHoo session, you hear what sounds like chimes immediately afterward.

sheri.schreiber 09/12/2009 03:56

OK, I restarted "Sims Life Stories" because I can't get Riley to give birth. I played 3 times from the beginning each time and it's beginning to get mad because i would like to finish the Riley story of the game. Now I have played the Vincent Story and I finished it without a problem. Please let me what I'm doing wrong. email sheri.schreiber@gmail.com

Stranger 01/12/2009 18:20

@laurenrocks: Yes, it is possible to give birth to twins and it won't change the outcome of this scenario. @Midnite1233: You must achieve a 'good' rating by talking to the guests, entertaining them and making sure that there's plenty of food. If you succeed the birth will occur during the party.

Midnite1233 29/11/2009 04:52

For some reason, I've thrown 3 parties, and all were not bad. Will it take a long time to finally have the babies?

laurenrocks 15/06/2009 08:48

Riley had twins in my story...is that normal?

Kiki1212 06/05/2009 23:03

MoonlessNightST 06/04/2009 17:35

Thanks so much for this! It really helped me get through some of the parts. And to everyone else, it took me about 7 parties before Riley finally had the babies. Just hang in there. Oh, and did you catch that? I said babies! I got a girl and a boy =] So happy I got twins.

queenbear10 29/12/2008 04:54

RiotAnne 01/05/2008 01:48

RiotAnne 01/05/2008 01:45

Okay I was also having a hard time with her and her child. But I talked to everyone more then once like AC said, and it work. She had the child, I got a girl ^_^ As for problems, I didn't have any.
